JOHANNESBURG - Eskom says there's a very high chance of load shedding tomorrow.

South Africans have experienced rolling black outs for six days in a row now.

The power utility says the grid remains severely constrained as it has not been able to build enough water and diesel.

Eskom's Khulu Phasiwe said, "We've had load shedding since last week Sunday so chances are high that we will have some form of load shedding tomorrow."

The utility is currently implementing stage two load shedding and it's expected to be in place until 10pm.

Stage two load shedding means there is a national shortage of 2,000 megawatts.

Stage one emergency will affect largely residential and commercial loads, whilst stage two would include industrial loads.
